    Download f0recast and run it with your iphone conected. This will tell you what firmware you are on what your baseband is. Once we know this we can help you from there.

    If you are with Rogers, you can go to rogers and they will unlock it for Rogers ( Rogers and Fido are the same company )

    Go to settings-general-about and scroll down to your modem firmware. You may want to give Yeow's suggestion a try as that may be your best option at this point.

    So you have two options then. Do as Yeow said and try to get Rogers to unlock it for their network for you. Or wait until the new unlock comes out which should be this month sometime, maybe even this week.

    Yes you can go to 3.1.3 if you want but it wont help you unlock as you cant downgrade the baseband.
